My biggest issue with this and just about all the current "jam" bands is the complete lack of real melody. Its all just "world" rhythm with some vocals pasted on top. Its all the same thing after 3 minutes.

Just having musical talent is not enough, there needs to be pathos...and lots of it!

Emotion, grit, and most importantly, unpredictability are what separate "tripping" music from boring jam bands.

I want my peace disturbed by the music. Scare me and make me question the substance of reality! PLEASE! Somebody already!
